eScripts top 11 million as more GPs adopt technology

More than 11 million electronic prescriptions were issued in the 2020-2021 financial year, new data from the Australian Digital Health Agency shows.

The figures are now being boosted by the ability of Best Practice Software users to issue a digital token through MediSecure’s prescription exchange service (PES), with over 160 general practices using BP and MediSecure now issuing digital prescriptions to their patients.
